    I have Windows 2003 Enterprise server SP2. I have installed MYSQL and PHP along with wordpress. I have edited the files from the tutorial on installing WordPress on IIS6.0 everything seems to be right but when I go to open the website it ask me to save or open as though I am downloading something. I have spent 3 hours searching for a fix on Google, this site and PHP site. I am at a point of where to go. If anyone could offer a solution I would be a really happy person.

    Sounds like PHP is not processing the files - it may not be configured correctly.

    Can you create a test file to see if it works? Like this:

    <?php echo 'test!'; ?>

    Are you set on using IIS? If not, there are some nice packages you can download which include Apache, MySQL, PHP, etc.. all pre-configured. All you do is install and everything works out of the box.

    I sometimes use this one:
